Nearly 14 percent of N.H. voters registered on Election Day

CONCORD, N.H. — Though fewer people voted in New Hampshire this month compared with the last presidential election, the state saw a nearly 30 percent increase in the number of people who registered at the polls on Election Day.

According to the secretary of state’s office, there were 99,319 same-day voter registrations on Nov. 6. That amounts to nearly 14 percent of the 718,788 ballots cast. In 2008, the total number of ballots cast was 615 higher than it was this year, but the number of same-day registrants was lower, 76,755.
